Submission Guidelines

Submissions for Vol. 21 are currently closed. The issue will be released late April/early May. Submissions for Volume 22 will open December 1, 2018, and close March 15, 2019.

We accept only email submissions. Please send your work as a single attachment (MS Word, PDF, or RTF) to steamticketjournal@gmail.com. Please indicate in the subject line whether your submission is poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or artwork.

Poetry: Send three to five poems (as one attachment). 50 line maximum per poem.

Fiction and Creative Nonfiction: 4,000 words maximum. Flash-fictions encouraged. Generic genre pieces (sci-fi/fantasy/romance) might find better audiences elsewhere.  Manuscripts should be double-spaced and include author’s contact information.

Artwork: We welcome photographs, drawings (lead, pen and ink, charcoal etc) on any subject. Please send as JPEGs or TIFFs and include titles for each piece. NOTE: Accepted artwork will be reproduced in black and white.

Include a brief bio and your mailing address.

Payment is in contributor’s copies.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Please inform us immediately if submitted work is accepted elsewhere. We do not consider submissions of previously published work in any form (including prior internet publication).

Steam Ticket acquires only first serial publication rights of accepted work. Copyright is asserted on behalf of the author, and all reprint rights revert to the author upon publication.

  1. Glad to see the submissions window is open! I’ve got both poetry and short stories that might be a good fit. Definitely going to send something in. Contributor copies are great, because I very much enjoy sharing my writing with friends and family!
